OUR FEATURED ARTIST: CLIVE HOLDEN
Clive Holden’s INTERNET MOUNTAINS is a manifestation of the artist’s interest in the mechanics of time and perception. Although these compositions are computer-rendered and manipulated, they fit – uncomfortably but recognizably – within the long tradition of landscape photography. These works explore concepts of scale, the relationships suggested by the implied permanence and impermanence of our world, the delivery of information, and the transformative effects of time on memory and geography.
Growing up in British Columbia, Holden found early inspiration in the mountains and shorelines around his home, documenting the vistas he encountered. Rediscovered footage, filmed by the artist as an adolescent, coupled with inspiration from ubiquitous online alpine photography informs this ongoing body of work.
INTERNET MOUNTAINS is currently exhibiting at Stephen Bulger Gallery until October 15, 2016.
